Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

Gaming Evolution
3 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is indeed a thrilling tale that starts off charming and welcoming, before venturing into the dark and mysterious. This romp, depending on how you take to it, can be completed within the matter of hours. Though not as long as I would like, the experience is definitely emotional yet memorable. The biggest deal breaker for this title will be simple-minded approach to difficulty and the learning curve for the control scheme.

Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons Review

  • Summary: " Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons " is an amazing game, which looks gorgeous, has a wonderful, moving story, and lasts just about the right amount of time. It’s an experience which will stay with me for a very long time. However, I spent much of the time being frustrated by the controls, which was a real shame given the otherwise superlative experience. It may be short, but the value I got from the game was still exceptional.

  • Conclusion: It feels like another example of smaller games stepping out into unique and interesting directions and telling smaller, more personal stories in ways only possible through the medium. It’s easy to overlook a lot of what makes Brothers unique from first glance, its unassuming style belies a title with a lot more on its mind. But stick with it and you’ll be rewarded with something really quite special.

Review – Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (Xbox 360)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Remember those cartoons in the 80s and 90s that would always end with some morale or lesson? Eight times out of ten it would usually be something like “Gee Really Big Man, if we hadn’t worked together then we’d never have beaten Above Average Evil Man.” And thus you learned the benefits of teamwork right? Well I hope you remembered those lessons because with Brothers : A Tale of two sons, you’re going to need them.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

  • Conclusion: At first glance, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons seems to be asking a lot from a prospective player. Its narrative is exposed exclusively through its emotive cast of characters. It provides a grand sense of adventure neatly tucked inside a three hour running time. It also chooses to relate the bond between its protagonists by a seemingly awkward but wholly necessary control scheme.

(Xbox 360 Review) Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

The Entertainment Depot
26 August 2013
  • Summary: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a story-driven puzzle-platformer that, although light on challenge, is poignant and satisfying. In the adventures experienced by two siblings on a quest for a cure to heal their dying father, Starbreeze has created a fairy tale that stands as an affirmation for humanity and the unique growth experienced through loss. It’s a short tale, but it’s one well told.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: If you didn’t already know, you’d be forgiven if you were to mistaken Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for a cooperative multiplayer game. Yes, it has two characters that are required to work together to get through the game, although it’s a single player only experience, and is also a relatively clever one too. The story stars the two titular brothers (referred to as only Big Brother and Little Brother) who are forced on a quest to save their dying father.
